The Shooting Party

FREE DOWNLOAD The Shooting Party 108 It is 1913 just prior to England's entry into World War I and Edwardian England is about to vanish into history A gro. I saw the film of this book many years ago Well when I say I saw the film I did not see the beginning or the middle and probably not the end of it either but I definitely saw a chunk between the middle and the endNaturally then it struck me that the book is very cinematic the omniscient narrator moves like a camera operator editing as she goes from character to character the grandees and the servants at the Oxfordshire home of Sir Randolph Nettlesby for a shooting weekend in the autumn of 1913We are warned at the very beginning that It caused a mild scandal at the time but in most people s memories it was uite outshone by what succeeded it p1 Autumn 1913 is followed by Summer 1914 The ritualised slaughter of gamebirds and a few other creatures who find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time throughout the book is a not very subtle foreshadowing of the slaughter on the western front during WWI but then again that was not exactly a subtle event itself Birds bred and reared in order to be driven out of the copses and woods towards a line of waiting guns each sportsman supported by two servants to load his guns to maintain his maximum rate of fire suggest the generation of men bred and reared to be driven out of homes and workplaces towards organised and mechanised slaughter though their chances of survival were better than those of the pheasants and woodcocks in this storyThe story is not just about shooting birds though it is something of a portrait of a section of society glamorous women who are mostly having affairs not so much because their marriages don t satisfy their needs but because it is the socially acceptable thing for them to do sporting and no less adulterous husbands who may be taking their sports a little too seriously their servants The storm clouds they see gathering are Lloyd George and civil war in Ireland though one at least looks forward to a potential European war with longing viewing it only as a means to demonstrate his virility and passion these are people leading impressively self indulgent lives which unsurprisingly leave them rather unsatisfiedIt is a impressively elegant and evocative little tale just 181 pages in this edition the final twenty or so pages tell us what happens to most of the characters after the events of this weekendOn the downside Colgate is in a hurry and can be a tell don t show writer a brisk example of this deals with Lord Hartlip s servant Albert Jarvis A good shot himself Albert s respect for Lord Hartlip s skill was unbounded he looked on him or less as his personal champion A bachelor living in lodgings and seldom visiting his family working long hours for low wages his sense of identification with his employer with whom his function as loader put him at certain times of the year and unlike other under keepers was in many ways his essence it was as if Lord Hartlip did his living for him pp96 97 If you like these dense info dumps and the pre WWI setting then I can strongly recommend the Children s Book to you Personally I think Byatt s book is too much while Colgate is Goldilocks she can be unsubtle but in a short book I can accept that she wanted to stuff in the detail Though I feel too it shows a lack of confidence in the reader my sense was that the servants as a whole and not just Jarvis were living vicariously through their respective Masters and Mistresses and come to that not only the servants but also most of the villagers view spoiler and perhaps you might go wider than that and start to think of phrases like false consciousness too and

FREE DOWNLOAD The Shooting Party 108 Up of men and women gather at Sir Randolph Nettleby's estate for a shooting party Opulent adulterous moving assuredly. I read this book many years ago when I was uite young and still believed in fairy tale true love We humans love to tell stories and believe them for all sorts of reasons SPOILER ALERT The hero and heroine will never marry and form a family unit however the heroine s husband is silently aware of their lifelong liaison and even approves the hero s bloodlines This is an acceptable form of behaviour in their set This book severely challenged by youthful illusions but I came to realize years and years later that we get out of life if we stop wishing for fairy tale endings stop living a magazine lifestyle and just stay in touch with reality and with the admittedly mundane aspects of every day life Monogamy as practiced by birds and other species that mate for life serves a purpose the continuation of the species Ironically for some birds not all of the eggs if any belong to the male who is helping to keep the nest intact and raise the young Cowbirds are famous for laying their eggs in other species nests So while I still love to read a heart warming novel with a dash of romance it is a good practice to stay grounded in reality The realistically drawn flawed characters in The Shooting Party rightly or wrongly make the best of the cards they were dealt are we any happier as humans now that we have so much choice and freedom regarding who we choose as our mates Aren t most of us still trying to conform to a cookie cutter life doing what is expected of us A very good read and one that will stay with you for so many different reasonsThe 1985 movie adaptation starring James Mason was EXCELLENT
